South Dakota Supreme Court support A lower court ruling invalidating voters-approved measures that would legalize recreational marijuana in the state.
Governor Kristi Noem filed a proceeding after voters passed a constitutional amendment in November. State lawyers alleged that the amendment was unconstitutional.
The court upheld the state with a 4-1 decision.
The Supreme Court said the proposed amendment “contains multiple subjects with different purposes or purposes.” He said each subject must be voted on individually.
The court also opposed the argument that the state should have filed a proceeding before the election. The court stated that it was not legally required.
The use of recreational marijuana is legal in 18 states and the District of Columbia.
